What does the certification mean?
It’s important to understand that the certification stamp, and the certification process does not meet / is not a requirement of any legislative process, Australian Standard, Act or Code. This certification process offered by ASN is to provide a level of confidence to the purchaser and end users that the product has features that either fully comply with minimum Australian Standards for disability access or have features that increase access and usability.
Our certifications are extremely detailed and either are directly assessed against specific legislative requirements or are put through a series of physical tests to ascertain the level of compliance and disability access / usability.
It is our aim to ensure that all items that are sold within the disability access industry have had a certification process undertaken and a certification stamp associated with the product/s.
How to have a certification completed?
